CEO to CEO Roundtable: 421A and Design Build

The CEO to CEO PowerBreakfast 

Join Green Building Worldwide as we convene CEO's from multiple sectors on Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 for a CEO to CEO Roundtable discussion on the Business of Green Building. As sustainable, green, building is evolving and advancing the CEO roundtables offer the primary format to discuss the implications, opportunities, and most meaningful approaches. The roundtable is designed to bring stakeholders together for cross sector collaboration for a timely discourse on energy, built assets, infrastructure, and public private partnerships.  

The CEO to CEO Roundtables, entitled the Business of Green Building, will discuss important legislatively enacted and/or strongly debated topics which have the potential to impact both built assets and the positioning of the green building momentum.

The Roundtable Discussion:

  • 421A, Affordable New York

  • Design Build

421A

The 421-a Tax Incentive program is a partial real estate tax exemption for the new construction of multi-family rental housing. Buildings in a defined “Geographic Exclusion Area” are not eligible for the program unless they receive governmental assistance and/or agree to keep 20 percent of the units affordable to low-income households. The tax benefit is a construction period exemption, plus a post-construction exemption of varying lengths from the increase in real estate taxes resulting from the work.  The 421-a benefits vary depending on factors such as location, method of construction and if requirements for affordable housing have been met. 

Design Build

Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the design-build team – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion – thereby re-integrating the roles of designer and constructor. Design-build is an alternative to the traditional design-bid-build project delivery method. Under the latter approach, design and construction services are split into separate entities, separate contracts, separate work. Across the country and around the world, design-build successfully delivers both horizontal and vertical construction projects with superior results – no matter what the project type.

The CEO to CEO Roundtable

The CEO to CEO Roundtable is convened for discussion on issues impacting key sectors.  Here, city, state and federal conversations are centered around initiatives which will have the greatest impact on infrastructure.

CEO to CEO Roundtable: Mandatory Inclusionary Housing and Zoning for Quality and Affordability

The CEO to CEO PowerBreakfast 

Join Green Building Worldwide as we convene CEO's from multiple sectors on Thursday, June 15th, 2017 for a CEO to CEO Roundtable discussion on the Business of Green Building. As sustainable, green, building is evolving and advancing the CEO roundtables offer the primary format to discuss the implications, opportunities, and most meaningful approaches. The roundtable is designed to bring stakeholders together for cross sector collaboration for a timely discourse on energy, built assets, infrastructure, and public private partnerships.  

The CEO to CEO Roundtables, entitled the Business of Green Building, will discuss important legislatively enacted and/or strongly debated topics which have the potential to impact both built assets and the positioning of the green building momentum.

 

Market Outlook: Capital Projects 

In these economically and politically challenging times, Capital projects and infrastructure, CP&I, CEOs acknowledge that they need to address greater expectations from wider stakeholders if they want to grow their business successfully. Forging good governmental relationships is key, given government’s frequent involvement in infrastructure projects. Cultivating and adapting to a world of multiple stakeholders, diverse values and attitudes is also critical. And given the public scope of many capital and infrastructure projects, communicating the environmental impact and the wider value for local communities will also be an important part of doing business in this new multi-polar world. - PwC 

The CEO Discussion:

  • Mandatory Inclusionary Housing

  • Zoning for Quality and Affordability

Mandatory Inclusionary Housing

Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) is a zoning tool developed by the Department of City Planning and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, which requires developers to include affordable housing in areas that are rezoned to allow for more housing development.

Zoning for Quality and Affordability

This represents one of the most significant updates to the Zoning Resolution in decades. Zoning establishes limits on the use, size, and shape of buildings, with numerous zoning districts mapped in the city’s diverse neighborhoods to reflect their varying density and character. These limits help give shape to neighborhoods and predictability to their future. But sometimes they also have unintended consequences, discouraging the very types of outcomes they were intended to encourage. ZQA addresses several ways in which these regulations, drafted a generation ago, have in practice discouraged the affordability and quality of recent buildings.
